What's your experience with pre-fabricated homes?

Kelly Dennett Reporter from Sunday Star Times

The Sunday Star-Times is looking into the rise of transportable/ kit-set/ pre fabricated homes. The upsides are build-efficiency, quality of design, and cost. The downsides appear to be land supply, red-tape with council and difficulty getting lending from banks. If you're willing to share … View moreThe Sunday Star-Times is looking into the rise of transportable/ kit-set/ pre fabricated homes. The upsides are build-efficiency, quality of design, and cost.

Whangārei District Council will www.stuff.co.nz...
|have to advertise a binding poll| on its proposed Māori wards, and then cancel it two days later, after a petition demanding the poll clashes with a new law doing away with the polls. The petition-triggered polls consistently overturn proposals for Māori wards, and are considered fundamentally unfair, as no other wards or representation changes can be cancelled in this way. What do you think?

An URGENT message from Whangārei Intermediate School

URGENT - Please remind your child to be safe by walking home with a friend. Avoid being alone.

A student today was approached when walking home in Third Ave today by a man who drove across to the wrong side of the road and pulled up alongside her. He asked if she wanted a ride and when she declined he reached out and tried to grab her. She escaped his grasp and ran all the way home. The mother has reported to the police and has now arranged for a buddy to walk with her to/from school.

The man was described as possibly 50s, very dark complexion (possibly Indian or African) with grey stubble with a black beanie. Was driving a beaten-up older red car.
